on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul
is he is still using to top surrogates, vice-president biden and former president bill clinton to campaign full speed ahead. >> hello, youngstown. >> after they stick together in ohio monday, biden has to solo rallies tomorrow in battleground florida. today he tried to drum up hispanic turnout by telling the univision talk-show host he and the president have been breaking karnak trying to get a real immigration law even though the president failed to follow through on a promise to pass immigration reform by the end of his first year in office. clinton was in minnesota, as did democrats were supposed to have locked up long ago, but it has suddenly become a battleground. he tried to use a superstar to republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming and economically beneficial ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. and in my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> the obama campus all so suddenly spending $650,000 in pennsylvania, a democratic stronghold wi
. and vice president biden was supposed to be in virginia beach today but had to call it off. president obama campaigns in florida tomorrow. ncht >>> ohio will be the focus over the next ten days and the latest cnn/orc poll shows why. obama is leading 50% to 46% basically unchanged since earlier this month and well within the poll's sampling error. we're going to spend a lot of time this hour hearing from the first lady, michelle obama, and mitt romney's wife, ann romney. two fascinating women and strong advocates for their successful and ambitious husbands. at the bottom of the hour we'll bring you a special of "the journey of ann romney." she tells our own gloria borger that some people have the wrong impression of her husband. >> there are a lot of charges about your husband. one of them is that he's somebody who has no core. that he's been on both sides of a lot of issues. >> and that's just to me like the most false charge there is. because i know his core. >> what is his core? >> honesty, integrity, decency, intelligence, conviction to doing the right thing. for me i've seen that in eve
chief economist for vice president joe biden, also an msnbc contributor. jared, as we look over these estimates and they're really rough now in the very beginning. >> very rough. >> sandy could cost when it's all said and done, the total $20 billion or more. exceeding the damage certainly from irene last year which was about 12 to $16 billion. meantime moody's an lytics estimate economic losses will total $10 billion a day, lost wages, production, sales for businesses. do you think that estimate is on target? >> yeah, i think that estimate is on target but i believe moody's said they're not going to alter their estimate for gdp in the fourth quarter because some of this will be made up and also some of this stuff that gets destroyed you have to put people to work to rebuild it. that actually adds to gross domestic product. it subtracts from the net but adds to the growth. >> one thing i'm being told in my ear, we have an updated death toll i want to pass along to everyone. we now have 27 -- 29, excuse me, 29 confirmed deaths. again, we started this hour it was 18. so the numbers
between christians and muslims killed hundreds in recent years. and joe biden with another gaffe, and the name of a democratic candidate in the key swing state of virginia. >> i want to tell you it's good to be in a state that's going to be represented by tim kaine. i'm a big tom cain fan. a big tom cane fan. >> he got it right in the first time and former governor tim kaine not tom cain is running and the hadded line, the candidate was not bothered by the mistake, tim kaine took to switter and thanked the vice-president for the shoutout saying i love jay biden. and if you want florida university, you might want to choose english, schools give a break to students who major in math and science and those are most needed for florida's job market and undergrads studying political science, they have fewer job prospects in the state. >> alisyn: lady liberty. >> cool. >> alisyn: the statue's 126 anniversary and the celebration opening up to the public after a year long renovation and 30 million dollar project including remodeling the staircase to make it easier for visitors to climb and
is also reeking havoc on the campaign trial. romney and biden have canceled events on the east coast. the storm is also threatening to derail early voters. this couldn't come at a worse time. both candidates are trying to make a push. the president was going to be making a big and intense push. >> it affects both and really gain this thing out. imagine, remember, early voting is one thing, but what do you do if you have significant damage? i think it helps the president more. he's the sitting president. he gets to be presidential. he might have to tour these areas. declare emergencies as well. but it's going to be hard for each campaign to actually justify in north carolina, in new hampshire, in let's say virginia, running ads attacking each other while americans are suffering due to this storm. they're going to have a tough call to make. >> the president, you know he is the sitting president. he's going to have to tour. if there are disaster areas and people who are -- not only does it give him that moment, mitt romney can do that, too. but it does give that moment to the president.
president biden and mitt romney canceled campaign rallies in virginia beach, scheduled there this weekend. now, the obama campaign says the change was taken out of an a abundance of caution and so that police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping preepal with the storm. >>> first lady michelle obama has canceled a rally in another swing state, new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham. the campus is closing for the storm. next hour we're talking with a member of the political operation there about the four electoral votes in new hampshire and why they are so crucial. >>> forget about the campaign events alone, there are fears that the storm could prevent some people from voting altogether. edison electric institute warned customers that sandy cou ay couk power out for seven to ten days, and we're ten days out here, which could include the election day. flooding and extensive damage could keep people from making it to the polls. just look at this picture we put together showing some of the campaign layers impacted by a major storm hitting the east coast. now, as w
obama. or vice president joe biden. the romney campaign announced mitt romney will host a so-called "storm relief event" in ohio tomorrow with nascar's richard petty. and country music's randy owen. if the serious aftermath of this hurricane runs into this weekend then for all practical purposes the candidates may have already made their closing arguments to the voters. what they have to say now may not be heard over the storm coverage. team obama's last public act took place in ohio while the president was in washington. >> we went to florida last night and he got up this morning and called me and said, i've got to go back right now. the storm is getting out of hand i have to handle it. i said, mr. president, that's the right call. >> i just want you to know, he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but, you know, he's doing the job a president should be doing. >> mitt romney's last come pain event was today in iowa. >> i want to take a moment before we begin just to think about what's happening on the coast, the east coast of our country right now. i
affected the race for the white house. governor mitt romney and vice president joe biden each cancled planned weekend appearances in virginia. ron is traveling with mitt romney. >> reporter: all eyes on sandy, including these two presidential campaigns. over the next ten days, expect to see the president and governor romney hit these battleground states hard, including ohio, perhaps the most critical of them all. it could ultimately decide who wins this race. yesterday, governor romney held two events in the buckeye state, including a rousing rally with paul ryan last night in north canton, ohio. the campaign says about 8,000 people showed up for that event, braving some pretty brisk temperatures outside last night. now, he still has some work to do here. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50 to 46, four points. that's about half of what the lead was just a few weeks ago. governor romney has chipped into that lead, but he still has some ways to go. for the president, he just wrapped up a 5,000-plus-mile barn storming tour. he took the day off the trail, spent a lot of time doing
will be cancelled. but this is also having wider impacts on the campaign. vice president biden had to cancel an event in virginia on saturday. governor romney cancelled events that was planned for tomorrow. i should also say the romney campaign says they are suspending fundraising e-mails in washington, d.c. d.c., in virginia, pennsylvania, north carolina and new jersey. so big impact on politics. >> the romney camp moving its campaigning, paul ryan and mitt romney to ohio over the next couple of days, but there too, they might find themselves in the middle of a whole lot of snow, while that's expected there, while the east coast deals with a lot of wind, rain -- momentarily, maybe about six minutes or so away, we understand the new york mayor of michael bloomberg is expected to have a press conference about the preparations that are under way there. >> let's go to josh levs. >> as we talk about so many moves parts. we're also going to be hearing from the governors of massachusetts and pennsylvania and we'll be bringing you the information that's coming in. everyone you're seeing is in engag
's changes, the storm had already altered the campaign travel calendar, if you will. vice president biden cut short a new hampshire campaign swing. and instead diverted to ohio. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is let this campaign get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and people's health and property being saved here. >> the tuesday schedule is also in jeopardy. romney canceled a stop in new hampshire. the president canceled one in colorado. this morning fema director craig fugate said preparations are in place to respond to the storm. >> we've been getting ready for the last couple days. i guess the biggest question with sandy is exactly where and how much damages are we going to see. we've got teams basically all the way from down in north carolina where it was earlier impacting the outer banks all the way to maine. we have teams in states as far inland as west virginia. we've been moving generators. we've been moving basic supplies that we would need after the storm. so it's a large response area, but we also have a lot of good teams with
that promise? [applause] we love having mitt romney here. but we like having president obama and joe biden here because they say the darnedest things in virginia, don't they? like joe biden, it's great to be here in north carolina. and then the incredulous remark by president obama that if you have a business, you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen. can you believe that he said that? does that sound like somebody who understands free enterprise and the american dream? fortunately, we have a candidate who does. i'm glad to have followed george allen. he was a great reform governor and he will be a great united states senator to help turn this country around. [applause] i'm so glad to see all you veterans here and all oh of you that understand the coal industry, thank you for coming. and all of you that understand freed new mexico america is not free. for centuries it's taken properties like you to make our -- patriots like you to make our country great. >> my grandfather came in search of the american dream. he worked in a factory in massachusetts and 100 years later his grandson
else. he was -- biden actually said we weren't aware of the earlier request for security enhancement. in any administration i worked for it would be all hands on deck if you were fk told that american facility. >> all hands on deck. let's focus on 5:00 p.m. on september 11th. the president is meeting with the vice president and the secretary of defense leon panetta. what would that does it end or does the president need to make a decision at some point about whether to commit or not commit. stew let these folks live or die. >> he has to give a signal to do whatever he can to protect them. i'm not going to guess small tactical decisions where we don't know what the facts were. if the president is saying i don't want to intervene or we have to get libyans explanations which there are other explanations that have been out there, that was a signal that was subordinates not to go in. >> we were reporting that we learned one drone overhead providing high definition video. now we know there were two drones. they had a live feed of what was unfolding at the white house. was it possible the w
. the reason that it comprised one-half of joe biden's two-line campaign slogan for election and why romney tried to race away from the position at the time he held at the time of the crisis, to let the auto industry go through a free fall bankruptcy. now, i supported the auto rescue at the time. i think it's been well handled by the obama administration. there's something more bizarre that after the first term, the president ended the war in iraq, passed landmark reform and a health care bill that is the most significant piece in year, a bill that gives each american access to health insurance for the first time. after all that, the president's re-election would come to rest at the execution of a package initiated by george w. bush in the last days of his time in office. imagine getting in a time machine and going back to the mall in 2009 and telling people in a crowd of more than 1 million, the man about to get sworn in would see his re-election hinged on the pack onlg of loans the bush administration authorized. there's no way they would believe you. the reason for this strange state of
bill clinton here, joe biden, the president, except -- etc. >> we are talking with democratic president -- congressman tim ryan. if you want to ask him about the race in ohio. give us a call -- ohio residents, we still have that line open to you. congressman ryan, a couple comments on twitter about the jobs numbers. liz smith writes in -- --other comment from james in your thoughts on those comments. >> nobody is satisfied. quite will say let's just doing what we are doing. who is able to take us from where we were, which was a hole that was dug from ideological policies that have been proven not to work. the economy collapses. i would like to ask if these policies that they want to implement are so great why didn't they work in the last 10 years? we have a lot more information and our society. that was not that long ago when we experienced almost a complete economic collapse. the president has been able to help take us out of the whole and get us moving in the right direction. there is a jobs bill that any economist who is being objective about it that will create over a million new jo
president biden went and spent a week with the next leader of china. i was in washington after that trip. i went to a high ranking administration official who had been on that trip. what is she like? the guy said, this is someone -- what is he like? >> the guy said, this is someone we can work with. this is good news for it chinese relationships. two hours later, i spoke with another administration official who had been on the trip. what do you think? this guy is dangerous. he is a nationalist. we are in deep trouble. i swear to god that is what i heard. [laughter] we did not know if he would do dramatic reforms. i think we underestimated him. with hu jintao, it was more repressive in certain areas that was when i was an ambassador in the late-1980s. if they do not make changes in the economic and political system in the next decade, i think we will see real instability. that could in turn mean aggressive foreign policies that would rally the foreign citizens against the devils. i do not know if that is is a prize. maybe it is. -- i do not know if that is a surprise. maybe it is. >> one of
in china. >> reporter: campaigning in ohio with former president clinton, vice president biden blasted the ad as false. >> chrysler has fellow bliged to go public and say there is no truth to this. jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. >> reporter: and while mitt romney is technically not campaigning today, he's doing a storm relief event, savannah, in the state of ohio. >> all right. chuck, a lot of folks are asking us this morning, is there a possibility with these widespread power outages that could last days, if not weeks, is there a chance the election day itself could be delayed? >> reporter: it's very unlikely. look, the presidential election day is something that is set in the constitution. now, states run elections, and they can decide to postpone, if they wanted to, it's happened before. new york city, of course, postponed new york city elections on 9/11 on the day that it happened. they postponed that. now, that said what did come up yesterday during the fema calls with craig fugate and state officials was could states
